    I saw a picture of Slipknot's Paul Gray with his custom 4-string tuned B-E-A-D instead of the usual E-A-D-G. Are there any current mainstream models out there that have this configuration?

    What JacobE said. You can do this with any bass; you just need to enlarge the nut slots.

    Theres the Sandberg Terra bass aswell.

    But the Corvette Taranis is your best bet, nice B tension.

    Paul Gray does it because they (Slipknot) thinks that if they play more more loudly they will be harder.
